121. Among core Democratic constituencies there's a profound disconnect.
Edited on Sat Nov-08-08 01:41 PM by 94114_San_Francisco
For me, this dust up at DU isn't about the fact that "Yes on 8" prevailed.

Democrats voted against the interests of one of their own most supportive ($$$) constituencies: gay people. The hope and change message was a rip-off, a fraud. That 70% of all Black votes and 60% of all Latino votes were given to "Yes on 8" is the question.

Democratic constituencies elected Barack Obama (who said a "yes" vote was the wrong vote). Democrats ended animal cruelty (2:1). Democrats abandoned their friends and allies and voted to remove their state-sanctioned civil rights.

Party unity doesn't exist for gay people and we're not going to be fooled by this disingenuous deception again.
